Wilbur Sparkes Recreation Complex

The Wilbur Sparkes Recreation Complex is one of the best in the province. It was the first field on the Avalon Peninsula outside of St. John’s equipped with lights for night games. This complex also includes a playground, softball field, tennis courts, ball hockey court, 3-way basketball court, and the most recent addition, a regulation sized soccer pitch. With an increase in population and a full K-12 school system in the area, this facility acts as a community hub for recreation and sports activities in the summer.

Strive Express Fitness

Hi there! Strive is the fitness affiliate of ProActive Physiotherapy. While we do offer memberships in a typical gym fashion, our strength is helping novice exercisers and those with health or mobility issues begin an exercise program. From members with low back or other orthopedic troubles to middle-aged folks who have never exercised before, we’re the place to get started for sure. Currently we offer personal fitness coaching, a charitable seniors walking group, TRX suspension fitness classes, and we plan to offer a high intensity exercise group in February for the more ambitious, athletic and fitness populations. With massage therapy, physiotherapy and kinesiology on site, we’re capable of managing a wide spectrum of members from athletes to seniors. For more information, feel free to email me, Justin.
